My apache logs do not have that first field in them, what distro are you using??

Yea, strange. I'm running SuSE 9.1 Pro at the office.

24 bytes of hexadecimal... weird. what apache modules are you loading? and what is specified in your log directives?

Here are the logformat lines in my config file:

LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common
LogFormat "%v %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" vhost_common
LogFormat "%{Referer}i -> %U" referer
LogFormat "%{User-agent}i" agent
LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \
\"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\"" combined

I'm using "combined"

well sir, I see the %h %l %u etc., but that first field isn't %h (the remote host) in any form I'm familiar with. FC implementation of httpd has that directory full of config files that get parsed on top of / after the main config file; could that be what's happening here?
